Screen Time and Kids

Children and teens need to be monitored and have limitations to the amount of screen time they spend each day.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends: 
  • Limit entertainment based screen time to under 2 hours for persons over age 2.
  • Avoid all electronic entertainment for children under age 2.
  • Establish “screen-free” zones and times, for example in bedrooms and during dinner.

For more information on the potential neurological impact that screen time has on the brain, see:
